Alrighty then. It's time for me to say something in here, again.
I'm a little annoyed. I'm going to have to ask my Dad for a loan, at least until the Feds send me my refund. I guess a loan isn't so bad ... I just would rather be able to manage my own finances. I'm getting a bit old for a bailout, and I'm not yet "too big to fail".
But it's making me procrastinate on paying bills, too, which does no one any good. All it'll get me is late fees. It makes no sense to be increasing the amounts that I owe.
And, in the long run, it's not a survival issue. It's just cash flow, and I do have a resource I can count on. It just hits the old self-esteem, you know?
